    45 Colt. They do make one with two cylinders to shoot 45 ACP and 45 Colt but in all probability, if its a brand new gun, its 45 Colt. If it were 45ACP, the 45 Colt round would not even come close to fitting in the chamber.

    Yours has two cylinder's....OK. One should be marked 45 ACP, and the other may be not marked at all, but it is a 45 Colt. Stop by a competant gunshop, and have them show you how to change the cylinder's. It's pretty simple.

    If .45 Colt fits in both cylinders, they are both .45 Colt.

    I have the same Ruger convertible .45. Remove both cylinders from the gun. Look into the rear of the chambers. The ACP cylinder will have visible shoulders inside, very easy to identify.
